Event description

Description

This retreat provides a safe and supportive space to practice meditation in an atmosphere of deep silence. There is an emphasis on the collective aspect of practice, with the Five Precepts woven into the fabric of the daily program.

This retreat is for experienced meditators only. There is no meditation instruction provided, and all practice sessions are unguided. After the first day of introductions and discussions to get everyone started, we will be in Noble Silence until the morning of the final day. Participants are asked to be self-directed for the duration. There will also be opportunities for individual conversations with retreat leaders if desired.

Work responsibilities are kept to a minimum so that participants can focus on their practice. There will be some light kitchen duties, such as helping to serve meals and clean up.

While meditation is considered safe for healthy people, there are some for whom caution is advised. If this is your first time on an intensive meditation retreat, and you are dealing with emotional issues such as depression, trauma, grief, or other psychological diagnoses, please contact the office to discuss whether this retreat is right for you.
